2019: The Year in Review

2019 Year in Review

Since this blog partially serves as a diary of sorts, I enjoy looking back on the year and the events that made it up. There were some tough parenting moments in 2019 (I’m looking at your independent and fierce streak, Sybil), but overall the year was great. The four of us + are families are generally healthy so we have nothing to complain about.
